Needs Moar G4

Today’s drawings on notepaper, left to right in rows:

  1. Silent Hill-style monster version of Sonic from an online RP, drawn while listening to Linkara’s review of Dying Inside.
  2. Silent Hill-style monster representing another character from the same online RP, drawn while listening to Linkara’s review of Dead-Alive.
  3. G3 Fluttershy concept.
  4. Pony version of my mom.
  5. Sonic running with a prosthesis, from a concept I drew a few weeks ago on needsmoarhedgehog.
  6. Colour Sonic doodle inspired by one of Darkspeeds’ added frames for his comic drama videos (essentially radio plays with the comic images playing over the top as a colour storyboard).
  7. Colour Shadow doodle drawn during VGMAwesome’s Sonic-Off competition this evening. Uses all the colours in the 12-crayon box and is missing his right arm to continue the amputee theme. (Shadow was also long rumoured to have a concept art with one arm missing.)
  8. Bowtie concept.
  9. Eerie corrupt Sonic concept also from that online RP, drawn first on the paper with the colour Sonic on.

You’ll notice the slight uneventfulness of the pony drawings, but I don’t think I need explain drawing ponies on a blog about drawing ponies.

Well, that’s a lot of different species!
All of these were sold with baby ponies in sets of four over three consecutive years. Let’s run through the names:
Cha Cha the Llama
Woolly the Sheep
Nectar the Panda
Leafy the Cow
Hoppy the Kangaroo
Zigzag the Zebra
Spunky the Camel
Creamsicle the Giraffe
Kingsley the Lion(ess)
Edgar the Elephant
Oakly the Moose
Cutesaurus the… Cutesaurus?
As you can see, some of the redesigns were based on show appearances and the rest were based on photographs I found. Except Edgar. I drew Edgar out of my head. It kinda shows.

Note that, yes, I’m being incredibly slow recently, and I have work to do, so we may miss some more ponies. DX

Lulamoon
Merry Christmas! And your gift is a complete re-working of blind bag toy Lulamoon!
Lulamoon’s toy is based on a very famous pony from Friendship is Magic: the amazing, outstanding, the Great and Powerful Trixie! Trixie had a full episode in the first season dedicated to her and using her abrasive personality as an example of bad flaunting of power (Trixie hyping up her abilities to provide magic shows, and inflating her ego via the praise from her lies) versus good flaunting of power (Twilight using her honest and very real magical ability to save her friends in a non-violent manner). So when Trixie received a toy, the fandom went ape.
After all, Hasbro went and used Rarity’s mold (obviously intending her only as a Rarity recolour, despite the same having happened for Cheerilee and Fluttershy) and called her Lulamoon, which is a rather embarrassing name. Often this is used as reasoning to deny all of Hasbro’s names for background ponies in the show, even when no official name is given past ‘Incidental Unicorn #2’ (the production name for Heartstrings, and therefore the ‘official’ name). The whole thing seems to come from the fact that ‘Hasbro do not keep very good channels open with Studio B’ - which is slightly untrue, as everything that Studio B does needs to be approved by Hasbro, meaning that Hasbro should indeed know the content of the show back-to-front.
This leaves Lulamoon, Apple Dazzle (based on Apple Bumpkin), Chance-A-Lot (based on Caramel), Roseluck (based on Rose) and Flower Wishes (based on Daisy) as oddities, and especially Lulamoon, Roseluck and Flower Wishes, as Rose and Daisy are recurring characters, and Trixie had a focus episode. It also leaves the designs of Big Mac’s blind bag toy and Cheerilee’s cutie mark as rather large errors.
And let us also not forget pink-and-purple Celestia, of course.
As it’s Christmas, I decided, let’s ditch the stage-magic angle and go for a holiday edge. The result might actually be the first Christmas pony of the line, despite G4 having run across a previous Christmas already. I think she looks rather marvellous in that tinsel boa and those red little socks.

Watching Prisoner of Azkaban spawns crazy, crazy ideas.

I own toy ponies too, you know. I own the entire Mane Six. Unfortunately, I can’t hairstyle to save my life, and it’s made worse by the fact that I’m not allowed to cut the hair on them either. So some of my best attempts at hairstyles come out a little… funny, let’s say.

Today I apparently felt like only giving Cupcake her cutie mark. Huh.
